Washington: Kenny G has filed for divorce from his wife of 20 years, Lyndie Benson-Gorelick, after she filed for legal separation from him back in January.

According to court documents filed on Thursday in Los Angeles by his attorney Laura Wasser, the 56-year-old musician cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split from his wife, a website has reported.

The saxophonist has also indicated that there may be a prenuptial agreement -- which is significant because he is worth a reported 50 million dollars.

Kenny has also asked the court for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s minor son.

Lyndie, had also cited “irreconcilable differences,” as a reason for her legal separation from him earlier this year.
